People-The Apple of God’s Eye
My desire is to become a Pastor. To lead the people of God to a genuine relation with God, that would help them to realize the purpose, plan and destiny that God has for each of their lives. The foundation of what every Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, should be to make real the fact that God is actively involved with His creation. This is seen from the very beginning when He created Adam they had such a close relationship that it is said by many theologians have said that Adam walked and talked with God in a way that no human being has since. We know from scripture that God walked around in the garden of Eden; Genesis 3:8.... And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.....This shows us that God is actively involved in the lives of his people.

Over and over again in scriptures we see that Jesus was moved was compassion for the people in which he encountered. An example would be the feeding of the five-thousand in Matthew 9:36....He was moved with compassion on them; this shows...
